Philipp Pusch - Artist
Object frame with found material, 2023
This artwork is an object made from a variety of found everyday materials and addresses the issue of social media and plagiarism in art today. It is a critical examination of the impact of the digital world on artistic creativity and originality.
The artwork symbolizes the flood of information and images that reach us through platforms such as social media. It is a visual representation of the overabundance of content we are confronted with on a daily basis.
By compiling these materials, Ghislain wants to draw attention to the problem of plagiarism in the art world. In an age where images and ideas can be shared and disseminated with a click, it is all the more important to protect the value of originality and intellectual property.
The artwork invites the viewer to reflect on the impact of social media on artistic creativity. It poses the question of whether the constant availability of images and inspiration actually leads to an impoverishment of originality or whether it opens up new creative possibilities.
At the same time, the artwork also addresses the irony that it itself consists of found materials. It poses the question of whether it is still possible to create something completely new or whether we always fall back on existing material.
Ultimately, "the modern artists" wants to encourage us as artists to consciously deal with the influences and inspirations that reach us through social media and the internet. It calls on us to value our own originality and take responsibility for generating new ideas and respecting the work of other artists.
